We, the Senior Members of the A. 0. C, are ready to launch ourselves into the tides 
of the future. We are the largest class ever to graduate from A. C. C, and our mod- 
esty prevents us from adding that we are also the best. For four long years' we have 
been preparing ourselves for the work we are to undertake on leaving our Alma Mater. 
We feel that but for the preparation we have received since we entered A. C. C. that 
we would be hopelessly lost in the world into which we are about to launch ourselves.

Class History of 1931 

There came to the Atlantic Christian College in the fall of 1927 the largest class 
that had ever come to the College to gain the wisdom that the institution had to offer. 
We numbered eighty-one on our roll, and we were just as green as any other Freshman 
Class could have ever dared to be. Being in a small school, however, we soon learned 
the campus, the faculty, and the other students. Having accomplished this, we set out 
to pass our Freshman work and become Sophomores. For our president this first year 
we chose J. B. Harris, who led us like a veteran. When we entered this first year, 
there also entered many new faculty membrs who have, in the most cases, been with 
us since that time. 

In the spring of our Freshman year we chose Charles Bissette to be President of 
our Class during the coming Sophomore year. We came back in the fall of '28, whub 
some would call sophisticated Sophs. We came back with much joy in our hearts, 
knowing we were no longer Freshmen, and knowing we would meet our first year 
acquaintances. But this joy was saddened when we arrived to find that many of out- 
number had failed to return. Knowing that we had more responsibility because of 
our fewer numbers, we set about the task of making our Sophomore year just as suc- 
cessful as our Freshman year had proved to be. Our efforts were not in vain, and ws 
made a record for ourselves that sent us up to the wise Juniors' of '29 and '30. 

Marvin Bass was selected Junior Class Pi-esident, and again in the fall of '29 we 
came back to find our class even smaller by failure of many of our former mambeis 
to continue their work here. This year we were driven to our work with much more 
zeal because we knew that next year — yes, next year, we would be the dignified Seniors 
of A. C. C. Again we had a very successful year not only in our Academic work, but 
also in our various activities on the campus. Long will we remember the Junior-Senior 
Banquet held in the Banquet Hall of the Briggs Hotel early in May. How well we 
i remember, also, of this same night that the quartet gave its first recital over the 
| radio. We got much enjoyment from both events. We welcomed to our group our 
t Junior year L. B. Scarborough from Weaver College and Johnson Bible College, and 
i, also Marie Autry, Ruby Banks, Mamie Harper, Ira Mayo, Dorothy Slater and Ruth 
Watson. These last named who, by the way, are all girls, finding that they had supe- 
rior intellect and nothing to do in summer, attended summer school, and as a result 

• are graduating in three years. After having completed our Junior course, we were 
I ready to become the Seniors in the fall of 1930. 

i We returned in 1930 with our numbers little diminished and with a determination 

i to make our last year a successful one, and also a joyful one. Warren Merritt was. 
I elected to lead the class through its final year of toil. When we resumed work in 
I this our last year, we were glad to welcome to our group two students of former years, 
« Miss Janet D. Daugherty, of Florida, and Mr. Raymond Boucher, of Alabama. We 
| totaled at the beginning of this last year forty. This, like our Freshman class, was 
| the largest Senior class in the history of the school. During this last year we had | 

* both pleasant moments and hardships. We look back over our long list of notebooks ? 
I and term papers and heave a sigh of relief. We remember our struggles as Practice I 
| Teachers and wonder how the students endured it. The Junior-Senior Banquet given ! 
I to us in early April is one of the bright spots in our school careers. As we come to J 

the close of the year we feel that joy that always comes to one who has succeeded, i 
but we also feel a bit sorry, knowing that when the call comes in September next * 
year we will be missing. There are only thirty-one left of the eighty-one who began J 
as Freshmen. The others have later joined us in our struggles. We come to the end; 
we receive our degrees; we are congratulated; we pass on; Atlantic Christian College 
continues. May success ever attend her and us. 

Signed, MEEDA WEAVER. Class Historian

Class Prophecy 

Late one night, while seated in my room smoking, I seemed to take leave of my 
body, and, floating about in a cloud of blue smoke that swirled about the room, I was 
treated to an experience with which I was in no way familiar. 

My classmates of the graduating class of '31 seemed to drift into the smoke and 
then fade slowly out. The strange thing was that they appeared to be years older 
and the words that they used told me of their life and occupations after leaving Atlan- 
tic Christian College. As was to be expected, many of the "courtin' couples" of '31 
had united in matrimony so their names will be linked together in telling you or this 
strange vision. 

Ruric Anderson, due to his commercial experience and career at Atlantic Christian 
College, had become one of Enfield's most successful merchants. 

Marie Autry, upon 'the retirement of Miss Myrtle Harper, applied for and secured 
the position as librarian at her Alma Mater. 

Ruby Banks w T as fortunate in securing a place as matron of a prominent orphan 
asylum and loves her work. 

Luther Barden, affluent husband of the former Gypsie Boswell, expects to retire ill 
a few years from a prosperous farming career. 

Then came Christine Brady, who told me that she operated one of the most popular 
beauty shops in Baltimore, catering exclusively to society matrons. 

Virginia Boswell, well-loved teacher in the town of Black Creek, proudly drove her 
new Ford into the scene, stopping long enough to speak of old times. 

W. J. B. Burrus deserted the Old North State in answer to a call from a large 
northern church. I learned this through Lottie Carawan, who is at present instructor 
in Piano at Atlantic Christian College. 

Sam Corbett drifted slowly into view long enough to tell me that his chances for 
winning the National Billiard Championship were excellent. 

Janet Daugherty, realizing a life-long ambition — a mission worker in Thibet. 

Mamie Harper is making a capable wife for one of North Carolina's prominent 

Bob Hawkins and Renno are well-off financially since Bob started his training school 
for aspiring young aviators. 

Grace Holden and Warren Merritt hold positions as teacher and principal, respec- 
tively, in one of the local schools. 

Essie Humphrey, so Earle Long says, is dietician for a large hospital in Florida. 
Earle, by the way, is instructor in ball-room and aesthetic dancing. 

Horace Isler and Dorothy Slater are another couple who have become successful 
in the educational realm. 

I saw Iva Mayo for a moment as she prepared to sail for Europe, where she will 
represent the Olympic team in the fancy diving contest. 

Merle Owens, wife of a foreign missionary, is back in the United States giving a 
series of lectures to young people. Ruth Sasser, who told me this, is proprietress of 
an exclusive Style Shoppe in Norfolk. 

Lonnie Scarborough forsook the ministry and is with the Redpath Chatauqua as an 
impersonator and entertainer. 

As tennis champion of the Arapahoe district, Staley Scott asked me to challenge 
all comers. He is also filling the pulpit in the local church. 



Myra Selby and Mabel Silverthorne, still inseparable companions, successfully oper- 
ate a home for aged seamen in Hyde county. 

Herberta and Jim Uzzle, thank you, are socially prominent in Wilson Mills, and Jim 
has made since, a reputation in Professional Football. 

Nixon Taylor, musically inclined, has had several seasons of successful work on the 
concert stage. 

Ruby Thompson and Edna Earle Barnes, both famed as movie favorites, extended 
me an invitation to visit them in Hollywood. 

Ruth Watson and Sam own and operate a first class drug store in Washington, 
which, in a way, is fortunate for Sam, Jr. 

Meeda Weaver, chemist for United Products, Inc., has at last succeeded in extracting 
malted milk from the milkweed, and is now financially independent. 

Jimmie Williams, ever a student of Shakespeare, is on the stage and is at his best 
when portraying young Hamlet. 

I was able to tell from Doris Barefoot's speed that she had long been an inhabitant 
of Alabama, so I will leave the rest to the reader. 

Last, but not least, conies Frances Manning, who has become famous for her radio 
lectures on "How to Stay Thin and Single", incidentally, she operates a Turkish bath 
house in case the lectures don't work. 

A breeze dispelled the smoke from the room and I came to my self realizing that 
T had two tests to study for and a note book to get up, so I bid my visions adieu.

* Wc, the Senior Class of A. C. C, in view of the fact that, in spite of tests and term i 

I papers, we may receive our coveted "sheepskins'', and in accordance with former years ' 

and the spirit of unwritten law, being fairly sound of mind, memory, and understanding, 

declare this cur Last Will and Testament. 

FIRST: To the faculty in general we will our deepest appreciation and gratitude 
for their efforts to make us worthy seniors and to lead us through a successful year. 

SECOND: To the Junior class we do hereby will our unlimited senior privileges with 
hopes that they will not lose their heads over such freedom. 

THIRD: To the Sophomore class we leave all of our notebooks, term papers, them's, 
and what-have-you, with advice never to use them. 

FOURTH: To the Freshman class we do gladly bequeath our dignity, refinement, and 
intellectual attainments, ail of these being conspicious at the present by their abscence 
in said class. 

FIFTH: To Mabel Cherry, we will the dignity of Lottie Carawan. 

SIXTH: To Edith Crockett and Bob Miller we bequeath any claim that Dorothy Slater 

and Country Isler may have on the parlor, and our best wishes.

"light fantastic". 

NINTH: To Bruce Riley and Bob Winfield we will special headquarters in the girls' 

TENTH: To Carl Aycock we leave the excess energy of Jim Uzzle. Perhaps with 
this additional speed he can be seen moving if closely observed. 

j ELEVENTH: To Hugh Johnson we bequeath the optimism of Jimmie Williams. We 

! all feel that this is well placed. 

i TWELTH: To Pig Reel we leave all of the cigarette "doobies" thrown away by 

? Ruric Anderson and Sam Corbitt during the month of May. ! 

| THIRTEENTH: To Sue Todd we will the intellectual prowess of Lonnie Scarborough. *

i "three-thirty". * 

j FIFTEENTH: To Goofy Langston we leave our permission to go down town at any ♦ 
I time he chooses. 

SIXTEENTH: To Sam Freeman and Jack Brinson we will Virginia Boswell's ability 

to be seen and not heard quite so loudly, especially before 10:00 A. M. ? 

SEVENTEENTH: To Doris Shelton and N. Paul Arline, Jr., we will the technique 1 
of Bob Hawkins and Renno Jenkins. ? 

t i 

EIGHTEENTH: To all boys who will be in the dormitory next year, and to tbe \ 
surrounding neighborhood, the outgoing senior boys will their sincere hopes that Bill ♦ 
Garrett will give up his saxophone in favor of tiddledy winks. T 

NINETEENTH: To John Strickland we will the shyness and timidity of Meeda I 
Weaver. ♦ 

We hereby appoint Charlie Kendall sole executor of this, our last will and testament. 

In Testimony Whereof, we have hereunto set our hands and seal this first day of 
May, one thousand, nine hundred and thirty-one.

The Junior Class 

Our Junior Class is small in number, but large in spirit. We have bad several new 
members to come into our class since we were Freshmen, also we have had some to 
drop out. 

The greatest event of our year was the Junior-Senior Banquet held at the Country 
Club, April 10, 1931. We hope the Seniors enjoyed the affair as much as we did. 

Next year we will be the Graduating Class, and we are hoping that all the present 
members will be back, and that others will join us next fall.

to help us realize our childhood fancies.

Freshman Class 

The class of '34 has proved to be one of the largest classes ever to enter Atlantic 
Christian College. We were fifty-two in number at the beginning of the school year, 
but slightly decreased to forty-five by the end of the first semester. The class is well 
distributed throughout the various organizations on the campus. We pride ourselve* 
in having furnished a large number of excellent athletes, all of whom won their "A's" 
in their first year of participation in college sports. The class has remained loyal to 
the institution and has never failed to respond when called upon. 

We, the class of '34, wish to express our sincere determination to carry on the great 
work we have begun,, and to uphold, to the best of our ability, the traditions and ideals 
of our Alma Mater.

Hesperian Literary Society 

The Hesperian Literary Society has been gradually regaining their spunk and vital- 
ity lost several years ago. Every member of the Society is doing his or her part to 
make a greater society. 

We had two of the best debaters this year that we have ever had, Miss Ruth Watson 
and Mr. Raymond Boucher. They really put forth their ability and we all appreciate 
it very much. 

Our programs have been exceptionally good this vear, and we aie hoping we will 
receive that longed-for Program cup at Commencement. 

The officers for the vear are:

The Debators 

The members of the Debating Team are as follows: Raymond Boucher, Hesperian; 
Ruth Watson, Hesperian; John Strickland, Alethian, and D. E. Poole, Alethian. 

These students deserve a great deal of credit as they have labored long and earnestly 
on their debates and each one did his best. 

There are very few members of the college student body who are capable of debating. 
So we greatly appreciate the efforts of those chosen to represent our various societies. 

This feature of the year is the outstanding event, making a combination Home 
Coming and Inter-Society Debate affair. 

May we have many more occasions, and may the best team win! 


: ' ! 


This has been another gala year for the Alethians. Our regular weekly meetings 
held each Monday evening from seven until eight o'clock, are looked forward to for 
an hour of entertainment. Our members, for the most part, respond with their pres- 
ence and with parts on the program when they are asked to serve. We have some 
very talented students among our number, and they always give us some entertaining 
and educational talks. We have already won the debator's cup through the united 
efforts of John Strickland and D. E. Poole, and we are working hard to again capture 
the program cup which we have held for several years. This cup is given to the society 
which produces the best programs throughout the year. We have underclassmen of 
ability, and those who are leaving this year are counting on them to do their bit, and 
keep the Alethians in the high place which it has been placed by the efforts of those 
who have gone before us.

Sigma Alpha Fraternity was founded in the year 1925 by twelve matriculated stu- 
dents of the Atlantic Christian College. Since that time it has influenced all phases 
of college life, especially the social phases. Although the Sigma Alphas have not been 
so fortunate as to maintain a fraternity house as has baen the case in former years, 
this has been a successful year for them. They have kept a well furnished chapter 
room where several smokers and socials have been held, and where each night a room 
full of boys gather together to swap yarns gathered by travel here and there. Their 
social season was climaxed on April 17, on which date their annual spring banquet was 
held at the Briggs hotel.

achievements during the year was the adoption of a coat-of-arms and the addition of 
five new members to our chapter roll, making a total of eleven active members. Phi 
Sigma Tau Sorority meets once each week for a joint business and a social period. As 
well as the annual banquet which was held this year, May 15, at the Woman's Club, 
many other entertainments have been enjoyed.

Y. W. C. A. 

The Y. VV. C. A. is the only organization which the gills can call wholly their own. 
They meet each Friday morning- at 10 o'clock in the Dramatic Art Room. At tlrs time 
a devotional program is given, and various student problems relating- to the life rf tod-./ 
are discussed. Special work in connection with the Wilson Relief Association has beui 
done this year. The girls found great joy in helping little children whose fathers be- 
longed to the group of the unemployed. The Y. W. C. A. exeits a wholesome, helpful 
influence which stimulates higher ideals of life and action.

Y. M. C. A. 

The only organization on the campus to which all male students, and only male stu- 
dents, are invited to join is the Young Men's Christian Association. As it reaches most 
if the boys in school, it probably does more in the forming of character than does 
any other one influence. Here the young men come together and talk freely in tlw 
solving of student problems. Everybody feels free to discuss his own and his friends' 

If you nave not been coming, see that it's the first thing you begin next fall. You 
will find it beneficial.

"And they shall have Ihi light of life" 

The Fellowship is an organization composed primarily of those who will give their 
lives for full time Christian service, and others wishing to fellowship with then. 
Jt is the only religious organization open to the entire student body. 

The aims of our group may best b? seen in the work it is doing. The Fellowship 
trains its members for leadership in all phases of religious work and endeavors to 
help the student see the need of taking an active part in the religious program when 
they return to their community. A great number of our North Carolina pulpits are 
supplied each Sunday by students from the Fellowship and members of the faculty. 

Successful and influential programs have been rendered this year by groups from 
the Club, in many churches and conventions in various parts of the state.

The Education Club 

The Education Club is composed of members of the faculty who have special inter- 
est in the department of education, and of students who have had one or more coursed 
in the department of education. Also Freshmen who are planning to teach may be- 
come associate members the second semester and regular members the first semesi. jr 
of their Sophomore year. 

The aims and purposes of the club are: To develop and make effective the personality 
of its members; to promote a close fellowship among members of the department of 
education; to elevate to a higher appreciation of teaching as a profession by encourag- 
ing more thorough preparation and the acceptance of higher ethical standards, and to 
discuss educational problems of interest to all good citizens, especially those who are 
planning to teach. 

The Education Club meets semi-monthly for a program consisting of lectures by men 
and women who are workers in the field of education, of talks on different phases oi 
education by the members, and group discussions. Some of the most noted speakeis 
this year were Mr. Fred Green, of the Wilson His;h School; Mr. F. F. Grim, Mr. C. 11 
Hamlin and Miss Frances Harper. 

We do not neglect the social side of life, however, as we all look forward to the an- 
nual beefsteak supper in the spring.

Student Council 

One of the greatest steps in the betterment of student life on the A. C. C. College 
campus was the organizing of the Student Association. In November, 192 i, the first 
step toward such an organization was made by the Y. M. C. A., which was particulaily 
interested in the honor system. Immediately the student body became interested in 
having complete responsibility of its officers which the faculty granted. The purpose 
of the association is to "promote closer cooperation between faculty and student bod/ 
in all matters pertaining to the welfare of the school; to develp within the student 
body a greater sense of responsibiitly and a finer college spirit; to make efficient the 
honor system, and to encourage and train for more democratic living." 

The Student Association of A. C. C. made a further step in the promotion of student 
government by joining the North Carolina Federation of Students. The annual congress 
of this organization meets in May and for the first time, A. C. C. hopes to have delegates 
to attend the congress this year. 

The officers of the Student Council for the past year have been: President, Ruth 
Watson; Vice President, Meeda Weaver; Secretary, Elsie Myers. The Council is also 
composed of Bruce Riley, Freshman class; John Strickland, Sophomore class; Clara 
Bass, Junior class; Lonnie Scarborough, Senior class; Nellie Sharp, Y. W. C. A., and 
Vernon Bryant, Y. M. C. A.

Football Team 

Reading, left to right, the men are: Standing: Ermen Williams, Jimmie Williams, 
Manager Rogers, Bill Garrett, Buck Rawlings, backfield coach; Anthony, line coach; 
Horace Isler, Warren Merritt, Joe Powell. Kneeling: Ruric Anderson, Frank Denny. 
Tom Banks, Jessie Dunn, Charlie Chamberlain, Jim Uzzle, Bob Hawkins, Raymond 
Boucher, Ira Langston. Sitting: Rogerson, Bill Gillette, Buster Bell, John Strickland, 
Staley Scott, Edwin Reel. 

After the 19.30 season was brought to a close the trustees voted to abandon football 
as an inter-collegiate sport for a period of two years. The 1930 season was one of the 
most disastrous that a Bulldog eleven has ever met. The team won one game while 
losing seven. In many of these games an overwhelming score was piled up against 
the team. There was no outstanding quarterback on the team, and they were unable 
to work properly because of this lack of a heady field general. One of the bright sports 
of the season was the play of Bob Hawkins, who was placed on the All-State selection 
by the Little Seven Coaches.

Reading, back row, left to right: Weaver, Manager; Uzzle, Captain; Traylor, Rogers, 
Bryant, Hodges, Coach. Middle row: Bissette, Banks. Front row: Gillette, Strick- 
land, Bell. 

The basketball team had a fairly successful season, winning seven and losing eight 
games. Much credit is due Coach Hodges, who took the team in charge when Coach 
Anthony resigned. He worked the boys hard and they rounded into a very good team. 
Our trouble the entire season was the lack of a versatile forward. Our forwards played 
great games at times, but they were not consistent. Banks, Uzzle and Rogers played 
very good defensive ball most of the year. Th-3 really outstanding part of the sea- 
son was the work at center of Kermit Traylor. This Alabama lad who is only 6 feet, 
6 inches, plays as smooth and as cool a game as anyone wants to see. During the fif- 
teen games played he averaged fourteen points per game. For the games played with 
the Little Seven, he averaged a little more than eleven points per game, showing that he 
can play ball against the best opposition. Coaches throughout the State recognized his 
ability and placed him on the Little Seven All State selections. You will agree that 
this is quite an honor for a first year man, but he deserved every bit of it.
